I just want to say if you need this staff for a cosplay I 100% recommend it! It's way bigger than I expected it to be. It looked big in pictures but it's way bigger! It did not come with instructions but I figured out how to assemble it quickly! I painted all of it over and it came out super well! All parts but one came colored so if you buy your own paint to match the coloring you'll be set. I only did two coats of cheap paint and it blended smoothly.
My only gripe is the fact that I bought the 3/4ths PVC pipe and it's way too tight of a fit. I sanded down everything multiple times and I even got an extremely coarse sander and tried sanding down my PVC pipe also the prop extremely thin yet it still not going though correctly. I tried putting the parts that attach to the pole without paint and it barely went through. With paint it's a struggle. It would've been a lot better if the holes were thinner.
Other than that I have zero issues. It's beautiful and I'm in love with it! I'm determined to make sure it works. I cannot recommend it enough!
